 Krakau, Polen, Registrierungsformulare jüdischer Einwohner, 1940 (USHMM)

Diese Datenbank enthält Registrationsformulare, die von den jüdischen Einwohnern Krakaus (Polen) im Jahr 1940 ausgefüllt und von der Jüdischen Gemeinde in Krakau auf Befehl der Nazis koordiniert wurden.

This database contains more than 20,000 registration forms completed by the Jewish inhabitants of Kraków (Krakau), Poland, in 1940 and coordinated by the Jewish community in Kraków in response to a Nazi order. The majority of forms include a photograph.

The original questionnaires are held by the National Archives in Kraków.

Historical Background

After invading Poland, the German army occupied Kraków in the first week of September 1939. Some 56,000 Jews lived in Kraków and made up almost 25% of the total population. Military authorities initiated immediate measures aimed at isolating, exploiting, and persecuting the Jews of the city. They required Jews to report for forced labor, form a Jewish Council, identify themselves by means of a white armband with a blue Star of David, and register their property. In early March 1941, the Germans ordered the establishment of a ghetto.
